The pair of points is on the graph of an inverse variation. Find the missing value.
(2.4, 3) and (5, y)
We plug the known x and y into the inverse variation equation y = k/x;
3 = k/2.4
Multiplying by 2.4 on both sides, we get k = 7.2
Now we plug that into the equation and put the new value of "x" in...
y = 7.2/5 = 1.44 (d)
Hope that helps!
